      What to see in Kampong Speu

      Right on the doorstep of Phnom Penh, the province of Kampong Speu offers an easily accessible off the beaten path experience for the slightly more adventurous traveller. Often overlooked, Kampong Speu is an ideal spot to experience Cambodia's countryside life and an interesting stopover on the way to Sihanoukville. 

      Some 48km southwest of Phnom Penh Kampong Speu town is centred around a bustling outdoor market. Most of the buildings are low rise with a few taller structures around what can loosely be described as the commercial heart of the city. This is where most of the schools, government buildings and NGOs are located.

      While the market offers few items for tourists, it is one of the friendlier markets in Cambodia where a welcoming smile is never far away. Stalls sell an eclectic array of belts, wallets, plastic buckets, electronic equipment and hats. In fact hats seem to be the essential fashion accessory in Kampong Speu and numerous stalls support this local obsession. You can pick out your own design for around US$2. One of the more innovative stalls at the market is a car decorated with an array of plastic toy vehicles.
